“As long as Muslims are not welcome there, I do not feel welcome,” Mansfield told RTV Oost broadcasting organisation. The artistic director had plans to visit an operatic convention in Dallas in May, but has canceled the trip. …

“I will not bring one euro of Dutch tax money to the US as long as that man will be in power,” Mansfield says.
